What is Evolution?

“We began as a mineral.
We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again.
That’s how a young person turns towards a teacher.
That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively.
Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”
— The Story of Evolution
Rumi, 13th Century


Nadya Dee in the News! [Japanese and Local]

Recently, an article I wrote for Kyodo news about my experience while living in Japan was published (in Japanese) on their online news website. Here's the link for those of you who can actually read nihongo (Japanese).

For my English-speakers out there, the article was also posted in English on the JETwit website.

Click here to view.

I was initially approached by JETwit to do the article for its series on Rural JETs to which I graciously accepted.

Living in the country-side is no joke. Lucky for me I had the sea-side and great friends to make it bearable.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to document and share my journey and growth over the four years I lived in Kagoshima. I am truly a better and more evolved being for that experience.

I also got a honourable mention in the Jamaican newspapers in an article where the writer, after reading my article, decided to centre in on the part about me writing a book. Not to mention him referring to me as "Forbes" {cringes}.

Aaah! Journalism at its best. Alas...

...for those of you who are wondering when the book will actually be published, well... so am I.


Just kidding... but it is a work in progress and I just hope that the Most High guides my heart and words as I put pen, mind and heart to paper.


looking forward to many more milestones and many more publications.

Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
